    I don't,but I'd say whatever kind you like the taste of. I think sage would be OK-rosemary is also good. I make turkey meatloaf and I think next time I'll try some sage in that.

    Meat Loaf

    1 cup tomato sauce

    1 ½ tablespoons Kraft original barbecue sauce

    1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    1 ½ pounds of ground sirloin

    6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

    ¾ teaspoon of salt

    ½ teaspoon onion powder

    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

    dash of garlic powder

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees

    Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Heat mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, then remove from heat

    In a large bowl add all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the meat. use a large wooden spatula to work the sauce into the meat until it's well combined.

    Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin- flour, salt, onion powder, ground pepper, garlic powder. Use the wooden spatula or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat.

    Load the meat into a loaf pan. Wrap foil over the pan and place into the oven for 30 minutes.

    After 30 minutes take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil, and drain the fat.

    Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it's still in the pan. This will cook the center of the meatloaf. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meat stream down the center. Don't spread the sauce.

    Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until its done. Remove it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
